Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beautifully written by a leading scholar in the field, the new edition of The Search for Modern China brings to life the characters and events of China's turbulent modern history. The narrative is detailed balanced, integrating political and cultural history with social and economic developments. Spence has streamlined and thoroughly updated the text in light of new scholarship and the major new steps China has taken in the last ten years. The Search for Modern China, Second Edition, features a visually striking art program that includes more than 150 illustrations--many by world-famous photographers--50 maps, and many helpful tables.

Synopsis:

"A remarkable achievement...vivid...fluent, graceful.... A publishing event."'"Boston Globe

Synopsis:

Look no further for a comprehensive narrative of Chinese history from the fall of the Ming dynasty to the present.

Synopsis:

In this widely acclaimed history of modern China, Jonathan Spence achieves a fine blend of narrative richness and efficiency. Praised as "a miracle of readability and scholarly authority," (Jonathan Mirsky) The Search for Modern Chinaoffers a matchless introduction to China's history.
